Greasey Rese and Floppy Earred 3

I knew I shouldn’t have had that iced coffee this evening….3—count ’em 3 slide shows!!! Joanne of “BLESSED”….I thought of YOU a kazillion times this weekend….all the sweet tea you could drink…and pies and cakes….salads, soups, YUM! It was a feast! We were fed every meal by Carmel’s finest cooks —-actually, Carmel Assembly of God is home of the BEST cooks in Holmes County. ACTUALLY, the best cooks in the State of Florida….ACTUALLY…the best cooks in the United STATES!!!

This one was so much fun! Greasy Rese and the Flop-Eared Three made a special guest appearance on Friday Night after the service….Haven’t seen those gals in about 5 years….well, not dressed as they were! (They really have made a CD!)

Pictured are Greasy Rese; Else Corene; Trunie Mae; Flossie Belle; and Greasy Rese’s husband, Smiley Moore. He didn’t have a chance to “get dressed” —but he did “brang” his special “geetar”. Had it made special “fer” him.

Now for those of you that are privileged to know this fine group of women “sangers” they hail from somewhere called “HOGWALLER”. THEY HAVE REALLY CUT A CD—AND YOU CAN BUY ONE! Go to the Carmel Assembly of God link on my sidebar and contact the church. Be SURE and tell them you come by way of Angie’s blog (that would be me)—“the Knightly News”. You can also obtain the CD’s or DVD’s of the services (which were awesome—did I tell you that already??)

Joanne—you will bust a gut laughing at these songs—Rese –ahem, I mean Greasy Rese “writ” them all herself!

(For those of you that can’t believe what you are seeing—-in the group are 2 pastor’s wives, the wife of the Sheriff of Holmes County and the Deputy Clerk of Holmes County. (they may clobber me for telling that!)

See ya’ll—what you have missed? Call the church—or send them an e-mail. Get the services and the CD’s!

One more advertisement—-if you don’t have your PURPLE shirt (which is only $10) that goes to support children’s missions (Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge—BGMC), please contact me, or Aimee, or Carmel Assembly. If you remember, it is purple because that is Wanda’s favorite color. Sister’s of Faith is our “sister blog” and the verse is Wanda’s favorite verse! Did you see how pretty the Sneads ladies looked in purple! A color of royalty! You need one too!


Day Two—Women’s Camp Meeting!

I am having SO MUCH trouble with this slide show. If it doesn’t appear on this blogpost, please click this link to go directly to my picasa photos.

Tea Time and Siesta Time-Carmel Womens Campmeeting

These are some awesome “Sisters of Faith”….precious Sneads A/G women of faith! These were taken at my mother’s house on Friday morning–second day of the Women’s Conference.

I promised them I wouldn’t use their names….but you may recognize my mother and my sister—I left the camera with Aimee on Friday (because this sister of faith had to work), and she took some great pictures of the Tea at the Church; the “faith-sisters-sleeping” and then I arrived home just in time for the “Mary Kay Makeover” session! It was a blast!

I would encourage you—plan to attend the conference next year. It takes place around the same time every year. I will find out the dates and let you know in plenty of time to “book-your-flight”. The conference itself is free. You pay for your room and food! My mother was hostess to several of the sweet “sisters” from Sneads Assembly of God~and I was able to join in the fun this year! What an incredible blessing~of course I can’t name names….but they were awesome!

Sneads girls, I know exactly why Aimee and Juno love you all so much! You are easy to love!!

Now don’t forget, if you want to be involved in our September Online Bible Study, see Sister Janice or Aimee to find out the best place to get your book! LifeWay in Dothan currently has them in stock, or you may order online through Christian Book Distributors.


Carmel Assembly of God Summer Women’s Campmeeting

http://picasaweb.google.com/s/c/bin/slideshow.swf

Take a peek through the slide-show and you may even “feel” the Spirit of the Lord from the camp meeting style services at my home church, Carmel Assembly of God.

We had a wonderful time as the Lord moved in our midst. Rese Moore, wife of Pastor Tommy Moore brought a powerful message on Thursday night– “And the Walls Came Tumbling Down”. She shared with us the secret of the Process, Power, Praise, Presence, Perseverance, “Peep Less” (sometimes we need to not utter a “peep”—i.e., shut-our-mouth), the Proclamation —and then possessing our PROMISE from the LORD!

To obtain the promises of the Lord…we must allow the Holy Spirit to move in our lives, reveal to us the walls that we have erected —and TEAR them DOWN! I won’t re-preach Rese’s message—but I would like to share with you something I felt in my heart as she was preaching—

We all—-yes, ALL have walls of some sort in our lives. Whether they were built of our choosing, or by the actions of another, we have allowed them to remain. We have accustomed ourselves to looking at them so long until we feel they are “permanent”. We have even decorated them—causing them to feel like part of us. But it is time—if we want to go further than we’ve ever experienced with God, that we began to disassemble the walls. Whether you need a crow-bar; a sledge hammer; a crane; or one of the mighty “earth moving machines” from the Caterpillar company, it is high time we made ourselves busy with the “doing” of life renovation. Tear down the walls.

What are some of the walls? Rese mentioned many, I’ll share hers and a few more: Walls of Neglect; Walls of Abuse; Walls of Adultery; Walls of Shame; Walls of Fear; Walls of Self-Righteousness; Walls of Pride; Walls of Idolatry; Walls of Sexual Immorality; Walls of Rebellion; Walls of Unbelief; Walls of Hatred; Walls of Hypocrisy; Walls of Envy; Walls of Gossipping; Walls of Doubt; Walls of Carelessness; and Walls of Disobedience. The list can go on and on.

It prompted me to take a long look into my own heart and life. I found myself asking God to reveal ANY wall, ANY hindrance, ANY THING that might separate me from the LOVE of God the Father and life eternal.

I urge you to get your Bible and read Romans 1:18-32. Read it in the King James Version; then the New International Version; and the Amplified Version. Whatever version you choose (I encourage you to read it in all of them), ask the Lord to reveal any place in your heart of life that needs His divine attention.

I have been prompted to deal with some issues in the next few weeks online that I had skirted around before. But girls, I’m not in this for a popularity contest. If you want to read what might be popular—I confess you won’t find it here in the next several weeks. Time is past for neglecting the issues facing us today. I may get hard—maybe more than some are accustomed. But I have to empty my heart of what the Lord lays on it. Otherwise, I will find myself in disobedience. If you read my post with Laced With Grace this past week, you will know—I intend to obey.

“Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace;” Romans 8:5 & 6 NIV (emphasis mine)

Ladies, it may be time to “adjust” the setting of our minds. I know for me it is. I intend to use concrete.
